Read about Hector Tadeo
Hector Toledo’s abstract work might seem completely detached from the representation of the natural world, but on careful observation, the viewer will find landscapes permeated with symbols representing current situations around the globe. Tadeo likes to portray imaginary landscapes filled with small crosses and other marks which serve as signifiers of places, people, or things. His work often deals with the topic of overpopulation, but he does so in a positive way, highlighting the exchange between human relations, conditions, and experiences. Of the topic of relationships, special to the artist’s life has been the sacrifice and support of his mother, a theme which he represents through the presence of flowers in his work and the addition of pieces of fabric in reference to her work as a seamstress.
